Fitness – the Wealth Motivator

We all agree that health is the best wealth.

On the other hand, “unhealthy” is very costly.  It can drain our entire savings.

I must confess, that motivates me to keep on exercising.

“It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.”

Mahatma Gandhi

      In the middle of a wonderful park area in Copenhagen. It was a cloudy day so the grass was damp and smelled fresh…. Thank you for your visit and for joining the discussion. I really appreciate it!

    Stairs in the woods are a great place to exercise. I used to have a place like this where I walked a couple of times a week….until a couple of unpleasant encounters with exhibitionists. Kinda ruined the whole idea of walking alone in a city park.

      I laughed out loud when I read your comments. There is always someone out there that thinks the world would be a better place if they behaved inappropriately. I stick to well worn tracks. When I took this photo, I had to ask a lot of people to wait until I capture the “peaceful” moment. Thank you so much for stopping by…

  6. Perhaps we are tempted to look for wealth in the wrong places. One more example of Gandhi’s wise words.

      Did you say free!!! That is music to my ears. When I was around 19, I sent away for this exercise contraption that was sure to reduce my waistline by 3 inches. It was quite expensive considering I was a student living on student loans. I was so excited to receive the package in the mail only to find it was something to wear when I walked. It would make me sweat more! Live and learn – that purchase saved me many $$$. I was never again enticed by fat reducing advertising.
